Exercise: This is my 5th day in a row walking as of this morning, so time for a couple days off 🙂. All my walks have been slow walks this week because I like taking the camera along when I am here in this park and watching for birds. Exercise page updated.

Weather: Yesterday was cool and last night was kind of cold but the rest of the week looks wonderful in the forecast. Wee, glad I was not up north this weekend 😁!

Goat-heads-

“Goathead (Tribulus terrestris), commonly called puncture-vine, is a summer annual broad-leaf weed that grows in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 4 to 11.”

When I pulled into the park Monday the first thing I notice was that the campground was just covered with goat-heads and if you have ever been around them you know they are no fun! They make a small round and very sticky head that is very unpleasant when stepped on and if you are parked near them you will track them into your RV and find out, Ouch!! So I have been taking about 15 to 30 minutes a day and clearing my site of them, by the time I leave I will have much of them cleared from this site. Something to do, and maybe the next time I come back, and if I am lucky enough to get this site again it won’t be as bad. Also, the next folks camping here will like it better too.
